Reevaluating the Tel Aviv/Los Angeles Partnership
The Tel Aviv/Los Angeles Partnership has evolved into an international model for fostering a more mature relationship between Israel and the Diaspora.

It’s one of those visions that becomes so natural in its realization it’s easy to forget just how cutting-edge it once was.

In 1995, leaders of The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles sought to establish a connection with a community in Israel that would be based on intimate and mutually beneficial relationships, not on the rich uncle-poor nephew model that until then had characterized how U.S. Jews related to their Israeli cousins.

HERE IS AN ADDITIONAL HIGHLIGHT:
To date, the Partnership has served as an umbrella for many diverse efforts. Jewish Family Service introduced Tel Aviv to its Café Europa, a social and resource program for Holocaust survivors, and the cities regularly exchanged social workers to learn from each other’s best practices. A health initiative involved Tel Aviv University and UCLA, and medical exchanges involved major hospitals in both cities.
